    "Werewolves" is an eerie thriller starting in the New England states of the late 18. century. The War of Independence against the English mother country has ended some years ago. But just as peace and quiet have returned to the ambitious states at the north-eastern shores, surprisingly a threat from the hinterland appears. Werewolves are roaming the forests and are terrorizing the settlers. The beasts are of unheard strength and velocity; they materialize out of a sudden, strike and disappear again. In their distress, the citizens of New England are recalling a legendary commander of the War of Independence who shall organize their resistance now. Who is this person? Of course it is the experienced hero just reading these lines....

    "Werewolves" is a mod(ification) for "Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Colonization" and the first official scenario of "The Authentic Colonization" (TAC), the community-mod of German-speaking Civforum. It is not necessary to install TAC too. Werewolves is translated into English, but there are some gaps at the English texts at the Encyclopedia, the ingame-library.

    FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

    How complicated is the installation?
    It's very simple. You get an installer. Please start the exe-file and follow the instructions. Werewolves requires the official patch 1.01f. We recommend installing the patch manually to avoid any issues. You can download the patch here. The Steam Version patches the game automatically. Please don’t mind that save games from the vanilla version cannot be played with Werewolves.

    Does Werewolves override any data from the vanilla version?
    No, it doesn’t. You don’t need any backup.

    What if I don’t like Werewolves?
    Just play the vanilla version. You don’t need to uninstall Werewolves.

    Must I uninstall older versions of Werewolves after the release of a newer version?
    No. Each Werewolves-version has an own name. You can delete the old versions to get more space, but that isn't necessary.

    Can I play Werewolves together with other mods?
    No, sorry. The game allows only one mod at time. This is reasonable because two mods don’t get along with each other.

    How can I start Werewolves?
    If you use the installer, you get a desktop icon. Double click on it.

    Does Werewolves contain bugs?
    Werewolves is software, and software has always some bugs. But it contains only few bugs meantime.

    What about the multiplayer-mode?
    It is not possible to use the MP-mode because there is only one playable nation.

    Can I use the ingame-tutorial?
    No, sorry. We haven't adapted it to Werewolves. Therefore it is disabled. That is a general problem of Colonization-mods, it is too laborous to adapt the tutorial to all changes which had happened.

    The billboards of the settlements have problems to show the right names of the cities. Can you help me?
    That bug isn't specific to Werewolves but to all mods. Mods for Civ4Col which are installed at MyGames-folder don't work if there is a special sign (like "ä", "é", "ñ", "ç") at the user name of the MyGames-folder. Create a new folder named "mods" at the main game installation directory and put the Werewolves-folder there.

    After playing Werewolves some hours, the pauses between two rounds are lengthy. Can you help me?
    That's a problem of the Colonization game engine, it isn't specific to Werewolves. Please save the game, go to the desktop, restart Colonization and load the save game.

    What's about the future of Werewolves?
    At our German-speaking forum we are developing updates for “Werewolves”.

    How can I contact you?
    You can contact us via Civforum or via email to writing.bull [ at ] gmx.de .

    I am really thrilled with the quality, the atmosphere and genuine feel of DANGER in this scenario, even though I am more into accurate historical scenarios! The possibility to get "Brother Mason/Founding Father" as a unit is really original idea, I am surprised nobody had come with that idea before! Electricity graphic is very cool, but I am not sure about the concept -- do werewolves usually get afraid of electricity :D ?

    It is very important not to meet with Werewolves too early. You should only go look for them when you have couple of strong units. I had my settlements devoured in no time after my scout stumbled across their village.

    Is there any way to opt out from going through the same (very creative) pop-up screens with an old tale (Your Antagonist "achievements")?

    Thank you, Tigranes. :king:
    Sorry, I'm not sure, if I have got your point. Do you wish to stop the little introduction-story told by the pop-up-screens? No, that is not possible. But you can leave them by using "Escape".

    Well, my point is after the tenth game player might learn the story by heart and does not need to see all those beautiful pop ups :D

    Thanks for making this, its a really creative idea and I like it. :goodjob:

    btw maybe change the Brothers Manson to something like Masonic Brothers if they are Freemasons like many colonial leaders were. The Manson family is not who I'd want in my colonies! ;)

    Oops. Sorry, I'm no English native speaker. I need feedback to find the right translation ...

    Salut Robert! :)
    Merci beaucoup, c'est très gentil à toi!

    :blush: I have found other modders who have created the maps ...

    Seriously: I produced a video-tutorial, here on YouTube. I showed how I created a map by way of an example. Then four other modders (Elwood, MaCross, Logan and Mhhkay) have created their own maps, have uploaded them here at our German development-forum and the community has tested them.

    This is great, every col player should try it. It is really more of a modmod rather than just a scenario. There are new units, new ressources, new great music, the gameplay is very different from col.
    The whole thing is very polished, alot of work has been put into this.
